Conservatives have soundly defeated efforts to give interim leader Rona Ambrose the ability to run for permanent leadership of their party.

A last-minute motion to change the current rules barring her from seeking the job failed to pass at the party's convention.

Some delegates were angry it was even up for debate, saying Ambrose knew the rules when she took the temporary job.
